The SDMC’s online platform for e-waste collection has received over 2,300 applications, with over 900 people using the service so far, according to civic officials.

The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) initiated an initiative in June last year to dispose of e-waste in people’s homes and offices in a scientific manner.

To dispose of obsolete and unusable tech equipment from offices, people’s homes, RWAs, marketplaces, and other areas under its jurisdiction, the civic agency has teamed with RBH E-Waste Recycle Hub Pvt Ltd.

According to the deal, the corporation acquires e-waste from individuals through an online system and ensures its correct disposal, according to officials. “Till date, the company has paid roughly Rs 81 lakh for unused e-waste,” officials informed The Print.
